    Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peru, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rural King (Peru, IL).

    Interview

    Well, at this one, it seemed like it took forever to get to the interviewer. I arrived on time, but they were twenty minutes late. I think I saw the interviewer walk by a few times, saying that it would be soon. The place seemed kinda hectic.

    Also, the interview did not go that well. (I had been thinking it was a part time or full time position but it turned out to be a temp position and I did not know that ahead of time.) Also, the interviewer came off to me as rather stern.

    Department Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Knoxville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rural King (Knoxville, TN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I went through three managers during my interview. Not one asked about my qualifications for the job or my experience. They only seemed to care about what Tractor Supply was doing now that they were moving in town. I worked for TSC at the time but wouldn't give them any info.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I tried to get on as a department manager but was told there weren't any open positions and later found out there was. They offered me more money and full time so I accepted even though I felt like something was off. Later I found out no associates were full time.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Rural King in May 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview, went well. Then had a face to face interview, was told I would hear something either way by the end of the week... two months later they called to see if I was still interested in the job. I told them only if they were willing to negotiate the salary.($30,000.00 a year for 50 hours salary). They said they would ask and get back with me. I have never heard from them again. Very disappointing!

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult, just use experience from previous job   Answer Question
